Feed Notes

Update 3-25-21: Installed a new antenna. Still working on finding optimal placement but hopefully it improves reception. Next step is enabling AGC on the scanner. I can't fix bad radio habits though.

Update 3-18-21: Changed audio settings to mono and upped the bitrate to 32. Hopefully this improves the listening experience. Still working on getting a 800 MHz antenna to improve reception.
